tELTGreenplumOutput – Docs for ESB 7.x


Executes the SQL Insert, Update and Delete statement to the Greenplum

The three ELT Greenplum components are closely
related, in terms of their operating conditions. These components should be used to
handle Greenplum DB schemas to generate Insert statements, including clauses, which are
to be executed in the DB output table defined.

Carries out the action on the table specified and inserts the data
according to the output schema defined the ELT Mapper.

tELTGreenplumOutput Standard properties

These properties are used to configure tELTGreenplumOutput running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard
tELTGreenplumOutput component belongs to the ELT family.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend

Basic settings

Action on data

On the data of the table defined, you can perform the following

Insert: Adds new entries to the table.

Update: Updates entries in the table.

Delete: Deletes the entries which
correspond to the entry flow.

Schema and Edit

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields
(columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. When you create a Spark
Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the

Click Edit
to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this
    option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property:
    choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection:
    choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether
    to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to
    propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata
    again in the Repository Content


Built-in: The schema is created and
stored locally for this component only. Related topic: see
Talend Studio User Guide


Repository: The schema already exists
and is stored in the Repository, hence can be reused. Related topic: see
Talend Studio User Guide

Where clauses for (for UPDATE and DELETE

Enter a clause to filter the data to be updated or deleted
during the update or delete operations.

Default Table Name

Enter the default table name, between double quotation

Default Schema Name

Select this check box when the name of the connection to this
component is set to a variable, such as a context variable.

Use different table name

Select this check box to define a different output table name,
between double quotation marks, in the Table
field which appears.


Specify the metadata mapping file
for the database to be used. The metadata mapping file is used for the data
type conversion between database and Java. For more information about the
metadata mapping, see the related documentation for Type mapping.

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to gather the Job processing metadata at a Job
level as well as at each component level.

Global Variables

Global Variables

NB_LINE: the number of rows read by an input component or
transferred to an output component. This is an After variable and it returns an

NB_LINE_INSERTED: the number of rows inserted. This is an
After variable and it returns an integer.

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the
component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This
variable functions only if the Die on error check box is
cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable
functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl +
to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For further information about variables, see
Talend Studio

User Guide.


Usage rule

tELTGreenplumOutput is to be used
along with the tELTGreenplumMap. Note
that the Output link to be used with these components must correspond
strictly to the syntax of the table name.


Note that the ELT components do not handle actual data flow but
only schema information.
